On the 17th May 2013 Year 5 went on a trip to Liverpool World Museum. On the way there I sat with Youssef and Frankie sat with Jacob. When we got there I saw a notice board and then we travelled to the Planetarium. When we got there we went into a big room with lots of rows of chairs. Then there was a film about Space, Earth and other Universes. Then we had a space quiz and there was a big black rocket above us, it was called ‘The Black Knight’! Then we went into a workshop full of bugs. There was dead animals on the walls and even a Walrus. In a tank was a Python. When we had sat down a man named Michael came to see us. He told us all about Habitats and what live in them. He even showed us a Habitat it was really small but full of insects. Michael said that everyone thinks that a Habitat is full of animals but they are full of plants too.
Then we went for lunch we all chose our own tables. After we had finished lunch we went to a shop and you could buy all sorts of things. Novelty Dinosaurs, chocolate and lots more. I bought a mood ring and Frankie bought nothing. Moments later we were taken to the Dino’s. There were Dinosaur bones, there was a winter biom, there was a nocturnal biom and a jungle biom. It also had a Comodo Dragon. After that we went to the Aquarium. There were lots of fish. There were Clownfish and a Sting Ray. I stayed out looking at the fish but Frankie went into the workshop about Rock Pools. We saw a Starfish which we felt, it was really rough. Seconds later he showed us a Crab thats shell was rough. He told us that when the crab has a small triangle at the bottom of it its a boy, but when it has a wider triangle its a girl. Carefully the man let us feel an Enemene. Consequently, the Enemene stung us. It didn’t hurt but when it stings its prey it shoots arrows into it and parilizes them. Suddenly it would suck the fish or whatever animal in. Even though the Enemene is the size of a big marble its still strong. Finally we went to the coach to go home. On the coach we played sweet and sour. What you do is that you wave at truck drivers and if they wave there are sweet but if they don’t there sour. There was a man who had a turban on and he stuck his thumb at us!
In cubs one of my leaders has told me that they are short of players for dragon boating. I was going up to scouts in september this year so thats why i have been chosen. There wil be 21 people in the boat, there will be a drummer who tries to keep you in time. We won the trophy last year and we want to get it again. Five people will be chosen from each scout county to race for GB. Matthew one of our leaders have been chosen.

Yesterday disaster struck, as the Titanic hit an iceberg and then sunk to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. 1528 people died.
At 11:30 last night the Titanic hit a sharp iceberg, making five compartments fill with water making some people drown. The holes filled up with up to 14 feet of water.
A lot of lifeboats fled the ship, half full leaving other passengers to die. The ship at that point was going to sink.
A lot of important people risked their lives and saved other people. The last time the passengers saw Captain Smith, he was helping a child to get in a lifeboat
Mr Joseph Ismay said, “It wasn’t my fault but the ship was unsinkable but also the ship was manmade and the iceberg was nature and nothing can beat that.”
Mr Thomas Andrews said that the journey would be luxurious and beautiful and no one would be harmed.
Captain E.J Smith said before the trip, “The ship is indestructible and cannot be sunk by anything.”
Katherine Robertson said that she knew when the ship was hit by the iceberg that it would sink.
